$200 Million Credit Facility and $100 Million Term Loan Have Accordion Feature for an Additional $200 Million of Borrowing Capacity
Plymouth Industrial REIT, Inc. (NYSE: PLYM) announced that it has entered into a new $300 million unsecured credit facility, comprised of a $200 million revolving credit facility and a $100 million term loan, providing expanded line capacity and greater capital structure flexibility with lower borrowing costs. The unsecured credit facility replaces an existing $100 million secured facility that was set to mature in August 2023, and the $100 million unsecured term loan replaces a $100 million secured term loan that was set to mature later this month.
The new unsecured revolving credit facility has an accordion feature enabling the Company to increase the total borrowing capacity under the credit facility and term loan up to an aggregate of $500 million, subject to certain conditions. The new credit facility matures in October 2024 and has two, six-month extension options, subject to certain conditions, and the new term loan matures in October 2025. Amounts outstanding under the facility and the term loan bear interest at LIBOR (at a floor of 0.30%) plus a margin between 145 to 200 basis points (previously set at 200 to 250 basis points), depending on the Company’s leverage.
Jeff Witherell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Plymouth Industrial REIT, noted, "We continue to make great strides in improving our balance sheet with access to debt and equity capital markets. With this earlier-than-anticipated move to an unsecured credit facility and term loan, we have significantly extended our maturities and provided a more efficient means to support our continued growth. We are pleased with the support of our bank group as well as the expanded commitments from both existing and new relationships."
KeyBanc Capital Markets, as Lead Arranger, arranged the new facility and term loan. Syndicate lenders included Barclays Bank PLC, JPMorgan Chase Bank, BMO Harris Bank N.A., and CapOne National Association with KeyBank National Association serving as administrative agent.
At closing, Plymouth utilized $81.0 million of the $100 million proceeds under the new term loan to repay, in full, outstanding borrowings under the previous term loan with the balance for working capital and future acquisitions. The Company does not currently have any amounts outstanding under the new credit facility.
